Sixteen operations later: People’s Project takes on another seriously wounded soldier

Another participant in the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project has overcome his course of treatment. Volodymyr recently went through the main surgery to restore his tibia. In summer Volodymyr’s bone and cellular material were sampled to prepare for the the operation. Recently the doctor of the iLaya Medical Company implanted in at the site of the bone defect a supporting block and filled the damaged area with a special medical gel saturated with with Volodymyr’s own cell material. Finance for the treatment of the soldier was raised by volunteers from The People’s Project via its crowdfunding platform.

The main stage surgery


Volodymyr, a father of two, is a native of Lviv. Before the war he and his family were engaged in growing fruit and vegetables, however felt compelled to serve in the war. In June 2015, Volodymyr was manning a checkpoint in Popasna when the enemy mounted a cowardly atteck and suddenly began firing on the post. A “Grad” shell exploded three meters from Volodymyr. He miraculously survived, but with extremely serious injuries – fragments of the projectile smashed the bone in his legs to pieces, heavily damaging muscles and skin. From Popasna, to Artemovsk, to Kharkiv and then Lviv – Volodymyr went through seven circles of hell, surviving 16 operations in different hospitals. Doctors in civil and military hospitals made extraordinary efforts to rectify the situation, however they did not succeed.

Despite the seriousness of his injuries, Volodymyr remained optomistic


Initially, doctors struggled with severe purulent infection of the wound and then affixed an external fixation device and partially offset the massive bone defect tibia with a bone fragment from the fibula. The condition of the leg was slightly stabilized, but it was a temporary solution, the leg was left practically useless, the shin bone defect was not restored and was about 16 centimeters. Volodymyr could not walk on the lag or carry any weight on it. The situation with ongoing treatment led to Volodymyr asking for help from the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project.

X-rays prior to surgery show the implanted piece of fibula performs merely a decorative role


There’s no denying the extent of injuries and the costs of treatment means Volodymyr’s case can be considered one of the most difficult tackled by the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project. However, we do not lose hope – thanks to the latest technology, the skills of the specialists at the iLaya Medical Company and the number of donations recieved, there is every chance Volodymyr will soon be back on his feet. The latest operation brings hope the bone block, surrounded by Volodymyr’s cellular material, will generate new bone and the leg will eventually recover and again be able to perform its functions. In some time, Volodymyr will undergo a control examination to show how the recovery process is progressing and make adjustments to subsequent treatment stages.

This long treatment process incurs considerable costs. To finance it, without your donations to the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project, would be impossible, no family can come up with half-a-million UAH, and the state through some legal nuances can not aid in treatment. That is why the restoration and return to his family and normal life of this Ukrainian defender and others like him is in your and our hands. Get involved.
